Some people are complimented on looking younger than their actual age, which they most appreciate when it happens. Some people take pleasure in caring for themselves, while it may come naturally to others.

However, did you know that, believe it or not, some adults can look much younger than their age, almost like children?

That is the case for one 23-year-old woman who looks like an 8-year-old girl. Her boyfriend has received criticism for dating her ever since they started dating, with many pointing to her young age as a problem.

You’ve probably seen “I Am Shauna Rae” if you like TLC shows. It centres on Shauna Rae Lesick, a woman identified as having a rare type of brain cancer. Despite being in remission, the disease had the unintended effect of trapping her in a young girl’s body because she had stopped growing. She is 3 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 50 pounds.

Lesick struggled to break into the dating world due to her youth and stunted growth. But as they say, good things come to those who wait, so she eventually found the one she sought.

Dan Swygart, Lesick’s 26-year-old boyfriend, was labelled “creepy,” which caused her happiness to fade quickly. “.

According to a report in The Mirror, Swygart’s romance with Lesick upset most people because of how she looked and spoke.

Dan seems to be drawn to her precisely because of how little she is, which is worrying. One person said, “I’m sorry.

“She’s 23, but she acts and speaks like a child. In addition, she doesn’t portray herself as an experienced woman. Another person remarked, “She has a childlike demeanour.

Anyone, male or female, who genuinely thinks of themselves as a “sexy woman” is either lying or insane. Another person responded, “PERIOD.

Lesick’s mother and stepfather, Patty and Mark Schrankel, expressed worry in one of the reality show’s episodes that their daughter might become a victim of paedophiles due to her appearance.

In December 2022, Swygart revealed his feelings for Lesick. When he first encountered her in the show’s first season, her courage inspired him. Therefore, he decided to send her flowers and a card that said, “Go live your best life. I send you all the happiness you deserve.

Lesick has a disability, but Swygart said he still adores her because she is such a wonderful woman.

It’s crucial to remember that Shauna is a remarkable 23-year-old disabled woman, said Swygart.

Swygart, on the other hand, asserted that his relationship with Lesick, not her outward appearance, caused him to fall in love with her.

So, he advised, “as you interact with her, keep in mind to recognise her disability and look past it to interact with who she is as an individual.

Swygart found it disgusting that people believed his intentions with Lesick were evil.

“You dehumanize her when you say she can’t have a real-world connection with someone else,” he asserted. He continued that she is a living being, and she has the right to connect and form relationships with anyone she chooses.

But Lesick and Swygart’s tentative romance is over. When questioned by the Daily Record, Lesick said they would have to try long-distance dating to make it work, but “it’s not my cup of tea,” she said.
